MLB Draft
No Rice guys yet (they're in the 2nd round as of this posting). Seth Romero was picked in the 1st round by Washington - that's a bit of a surprise to me.

I think Glenn goes late 3rd or early 4th round.

RE: MLB Draft
Not sure if Romero would be up for a possible late season call up to the bullpen. The Nationals sure need help there, and his high strikeout, low HR numbers from college might work - if it winds up translating. He also doesn't have a full college season he's coming off of - but I have no idea if he's stayed in baseball shape.

Doesn't sound like a very mature person at this point - so can they risk it? They kind of already have by taking him in first round, though it is late in the round.

Otto continues to slip as a bunch of college no-name pitchers get drafted ahead of him. Now well into 4th round. Some one is going to get a great value.

I'm assuming none of our recruits are high draft prospects? It's been said on here that this is a strong incoming class but it didn't seem like any of the guys were high draft targets from the scouting reports. I think I'd rather be sweating it out than not have anyone on the boards...

Trei Cruz is very highly regarded, but the scouts know he's coming to Rice. Probably would have been drafted somewhere in the 10th - 15th round otherwise.

RE: MLB Draft
Congrats to he and his family.

It's kind of funny to see the results of the MLB draft tracker if you select the letter R for schools. The Rice guys included as possible selections are Otto, Chandler, Gray, Myers (no surprises there), along with Ricky Salinas (bit of a surprise but okay), and Cody Staab and Khevin Brewer.

ETA - I don't even think Staab is eligible. He just finished his second year and doesn't turn 21 until next month?

Staab showed some promise for us his freshman year but barely saw the field this year, even when Warren was struggling so terribly.

Any chance Otto will come back given he's only going to get about half the money he was projected to get in the 3rd round?

RE: MLB Draft
Dane drafted much higher than I expected. Pretty much means he's going to sign. And, yes, though Glenn slipped 2 - 3 rounds past where he was once projected, the Yankees got a steal and will no doubt show him sufficient money.

Congrats to both of them-- probably my 2 favorite guys on the team.

They may only give him slot value. No guarantee with the way the draft works these days.

Saw on draft tracker that Dane and Glenn were born within 3 days of each other.

RE: MLB Draft
The BA scouting report for Dane is very rich. Congrats to Dane. It's been fun watching his development:

Quote:He's not as accomplished as a two-way player as Brendan McKay or Adam Haseley, but what Dane Myers has done this year is arguably tougher. Myers was supposed to be Rice's first baseman/pitcher this year, but as the Owls struggled, they needed to put him back at third base, even if that meant he didn't get to pitch as much. Myers has a shot at being a legitimate pro prospect as a third baseman or pitcher. He's had a breakout year at the plate, hitting .360/.427/.531. He projects as an at least average hitter with fringe-average power. His plus arm and advanced body control makes him an above-average defender at third and he's an average runner. But most scouts are more interested in what he can do on the mound. When he was fresh and rested at the start of the season, he pitched effectively for six innings in the season opener against Texas, sitting 89-94 mph and touching 96 with his fastball and mixing in an erratic but effective 12-to-6 spike curveball that flashed plus. As the season has worn on, his fastball has backed up because of the wear and tear of playing third base, but he has added a slider that he can throw for strikes more consistently than his curveball. His changeup is a below-average pitch at this point. Myers has never really gotten to work extensively on his pitching because of his responsibilities as a position player. With his athleticism, scouts can dream on just how good his stuff on the mound could be with more regular work.

If my memory serves me well, CSC was not selected until the seventh or eighth round, both times.
